A Quote by William Hazlitt on books, happiness, life, reading, thinking, and writing

So I have loitered my life away, reading books, looking at pictures, going to plays, hearing, thinking, writing on what pleased me best. I have wanted only one thing to make me happy, but wanting that have wanted everything.

William Hazlitt (1778 - 1830)
